cholan express is a day train. starts chennai 8.15 a.m reaches tiruchy 16.35 p.m. and on return journey starts tiruchy 9.35 a.m reaches chennai 17.50 p.m. so it is a hundred percent day time train. but originally it was running up to kumbakonam etc and there was sleeper coaches attached to it. but it runs up to tiruchy now. but the sleeper coaches are there and extra cost is plucked out from the passengers. railway may think that Indians are always sleepy and they will sleep even during day time. but we are blabbering on other side that we are going to become super power country soon. if rules are there that for changing coaches etc railway will have to get permission from ministry like that change that rules it self. don't say that we have to get permission from world health organisation...

cholan runs from trichy to chennai only. due to gauge conversion it terminated at KMU.
cholan didnt get its rake. its sharing rake with MS MAQ express which on past runs as TPJ MAQ express. so only it have sleepers.
if cholan gets it own rake it will be with 2S and CC as of in MG era.

Your comparison for railway to realize it's fault is good. But THis sleeper Coach composition is because of the RSA with MS-MAQ-MS Express.
If it gets it's own CC, it will have 2S and CC coaches..

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
